National Poetry Month: The “LL” Challenge: Bullrush

IMG_1540

Today’s word: BULLRUSH

Definition: the old spelling of bulrush

Definition: bull rush:  a defensive, forceful move in football.

Well, when I listed bullrush a month ago, I was thinking of the bulrush plant and not football.

contentment
on her morning walk
along the wetland,
the bulrushes
conk-la-ree
of the red-winged blackbird
dawn’s dew drop smell

then

she remembers
the bull rush
of words
